The practice was originally established at the Lauderdale surgery in 1990 by Dr John Saul. John was soon joined by Dr Tim Jackson and Dr Cath Jeanneret. Under the leadership of these dynamic medical practitioners, Eastern Shore Doctors (ESD) grew to three general practice locations and a stand-alone skin cancer clinic with over 30 doctors and a large and loyal patient base.

After 30 years of serving the community, the partners considered the issue of ongoing access for the Eastern Shore Community to excellent general practice care into the future. In April 2021, a decision was made to pass the ownership of the practice to Better Medical, an Adelaide-based group whose values align with the GP-led approach, which has been a hallmark of ESD since its inception. The group now operates Eastern Shore Doctors Bellerive and the Hobart Skin Cancer Clinic. 

Although John, Tim, and Cath have now retired, the other wonderful doctors continue to work as a team with our friendly and helpful nursing and reception staff to deliver health care to our community.
